The Changing Role of Women in the U.K. [electronic resource]

The 20th century saw enormous change for women in the home, at work, and in society at large. What has brought about these changes, and are they for the better? Even with legislation to ensure equal pay for equal work, sexual discrimination outlawed, and a former female prime minister, concerns about equality remain. Are today's women expected to be responsible for cooking, cleaning, and childcare as well as being employed outside the home? This program explores the changing role of women in the U.K., touching on voting, the impact of World War II, and the glass ceiling.

The Forsyte Saga: Series One

Loading...
It is late in the Victorian era, and two branches of an upper-crust family--the "good" Forsytes, headed by well-meaning Old Jolyon, and the "bad" Forsytes, headed by crusty barrister James--are at odds, eternally squabbling. The 'saga' focuses on the younger generations - Young Jolyon, Soames, Winifred, June - and their struggles with emotional repression, the rejection of Victorian mores, and the sea changes taking place as a less repressive society emerged. Every family may indeed have its vicissitudes, but few have as many as John Galsworthy's Forsytes.
